Germany’s SportBild are reporting, as fact and from their own information, that Jan Siewert is on the verge of becoming Huddersfield Town manager.
They say the Borussia Dortmund coach will be appointed as Huddersfield manager ‘with immediate effect’, taking over from compatriot David Wagner, who decided to leave the Premier League club earlier this month.
Huddersfield Town will be paying a fee to Borussia Dortmund of €300k to compensate for taking their U23 coach away.
Alen Terzic will be taking over Siewerts’ BVB role in the summer.
The new Huddersfield manager, as Bild insist he will be, is only 36 years of age and the second coach the Terriers have taken from the BVB system, after David Wagner.
The German media outlet believe the young manager needs a ‘miracle’ if he’s to save the club from relegation this season.
Bottom of the Premier League with eleven points from 22 matches, Huddersfield are eight points from safety.
